Our Learning

Internet Safety Day
13 February 2015

The digital leaders had a busy day today running workshops for all four classes! This is what they thought about their day:

We have learnt many teaching skills in these sessions and feel that our point has come across well about internet safety. Each class has listened carefully and seemed to understand and enjoy their activities. We used a story called ‘Smartie the Penguin’ with class 1, ‘Digiduck’ with class 2 and a powerpoint that used ‘Mitch the stay safe, surfing Monkey’ with classes 3 and 4.

Children had a chance to make posters and sort cards with safe and unsafe scenarios and had fun with our cuddly characters. We hope that our internet safety day has helped everyone to understand how to stay safe when using technology. Look out for the SMART posters around school for the golden rules of staying safe. Jacob, Evie, Amelia, Libby, Vanessa and Arabella.

Here are some quotes from children who enjoyed their workshops:

Lily “ It was fun doing the activity and I learnt that if any pop ups come onto the screen we should tell a responsible adult.”

Toby “ I enjoyed the activity and learnt how to deal with any tricky problems on the computer.”

Jeremiah “ It was a fun activity and I learnt that I shouldn’t make friends online without my parents permission.”

Jasmine “ It was helpful to see how to stay safe online and it reminded me of the things that are important about our internet safety and who to trust.”

George's Marvellous Medicine
12 December 2014

Class 4 had a fabulous time at the Northcott theatre on Wednesday when they went to see George’s Marvellous Medicine. We all laughed all the way through but especially when Grandma grew so big that she burst through the roof! A big thank you to Mrs Broomby, Mrs Thomas and Mrs Taylor who helped keep our costs down by transporting the class to the theatre.

Digital Leaders
25 November 2014

The digital leaders gave their first assembly to classes 1,2 and 4 today about Internet safety. They worked as a team to produce an interactive presentation with quiz prizes giving a strong message about staying safe online. We are very proud of them and they are now being booked by class 2 to demonstrate using the Telligami app on the iPads. Upon Evie’s return the digital leaders will present their assembly to class 3 and will be setting up a coding club! Well done to Jacob, Libby, Evie, Amelia and Arabella.

Class 4 have been using cuisenaire rods to discover algebra. They have made equations to compare rods such a=n+w or w =1/10 of a. They still have more discoveries to find and will be developing their findings into further algebraic learning.
